Deputy National Security adviser Matt Pottinger resigned Wednesday after President Donald Trump’s adherents stormed the United States Capitol to protest the results of the 2020 election. Matt Pottinger was a prominent force in the administration on the president’s truculent stance against China and stood for Hong Kong’s protests for liberation.
Pottinger intended to resign on Election Day, according to Bloomberg News herald Jennifer Jacobs who broke the news of his resignation, but he was convinced to stay by Trump’s National Security adviser Robert O’Brien.
Media reports included O’Brien on a list of Trump officials who were considering resigning after Trump adherents stormed the capitol to protest the election. Other officials promulgating their resignations included First Lady Melania Trump’s chief of staff, Stephanie Grisham, Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Matthews, and White House convivial secretary, Rickie Nicet.
“It has been an accolade to accommodate the country in the White House. I am very proud to have been a component of Mrs. Trump’s mission to avail children everywhere and proud of the many accomplishments of this administration,” Grisham verbally expressed in a verbal expression.
